About Sambassadeur

One of the many accomplished indie pop bands in Sweden in the 2000s, Gothenberg's Sambassadeur make beautifully wistful, hazy music along the lines of the Go-Betweens, Belle & Sebastian, and the Magnetic Fields. Formed in fall 2003, they issued two self-released CDs and a 7" on Dolores before signing to Labrador late in 2004. Released in 2005, the Between the Lines EP was their debut release for the label. Summer 2005 saw the release of their official self-titled debut album, along with more touring in Sweden and the U.K. In 2006, the Coastal Affairs EP arrived; one of its songs, "Kate," was featured in a commercial for Payless Shoes in the U.S. that summer. ~ Heather Phares
